Sochi host Rubin Kazan at the Olympiastadion with both clubs in search of their first wins of the season. Sochi do their best work at home in the Russian Premier League, but Rubin Kazan are very hard to beat on the road.

Sochi Form


Sochi got their season off to a good start after a 2-2 draw at Spartak Moscow. Vladimir Fedotov’s side were 2-0 down after 10 minutes but fought back strong.

Dmitriy Poloz scored a penalty in the 15th minute and Christian Noboa equalised from the spot in the 90th minute. Sochi returned to the Olympiastadion and drew 1-1 against Khimki.

Noboa equalised in the 63rd minute in an even match. Sochi will be disappointed not to have taken all three points against the promoted side.

Sochi Team News


Midfielders Aleksey Pomerko is injured and Anatoly Nemchenko remains doubtful.
